New!  Tsuge: Sandblasted Billiard with Bamboo

Product Number: 002-099-4781

In the past I have been startled by the number of pipe smokers who have yet to try a briar with a bamboo shank... I think if you have not, then you are truly missing out. Aside from the fact that bamboo looks naturalistic and flat-out gnarly, it actually has a few functional benefits. Bamboo is lightweight and very strong, and it has the ability to soak-up moisture which helps to keep the smoke cool and dry. After many years of enjoyment, it will darken a bit and develop a very nice patina. This Billiard, for instance, would have been at least a few grams heavier if the shank had been briar. Whether you are looking to try your first bamboo, or simply wish to add another to your collection, the Tsuge Bamboo series simply cannot be beat for the money.
